Bunny hop (cycling)

Bunny hop (cycling)

A bunny hop is carried out by approaching an obstacle at speed, lifting the front of the bike and leveling the pedals. If the bike has suspension (full or just front), then the shocks may be "pre-loaded" by applying downwards pressure to them just before the obstacle.

A bunny hop is especially useful in off-road, trick and BMX cycling. However the bunny hop is a useful skill for an urban cyclist/commuter, allowing the avoidance of potholes, other hazards, and allowing for a quick mounting of the pavement.
